Lycos suspended their free Guestbook feature in March 2012 and have given me a download of previous guestbooks I had. These are entries (341) from my Homepage that range from 1997 till 2012 and have many different surname queries. Please use the search feature on your internet browser to search this page.

Another problem just came to my attention in 2017 that when Aabaco purchased Yahoo a couple years back they decided to change the name of their .com only on the guestbook, so my guestbook has probably been inaccessible for two years. So please if you have visited and wanted to sign please do so now. Thank you for your kind words and continued support. Joe Payne

3/30/1998 22:19Warren or war1puck@hotmail.comI live in Hawthorne, CA born Detriot, raised in ChattanoogaMy father: Warren Lee Puckett- Claimed to have known Alvin York-Fentress Co. said he hunted with him more likely they got drunk in the same bar or tavern.
Born :~ apr 11 1886 Buffalo Creek, TN.
Death: ~apr 30 1966.
US Army WWI, Corps of Engineers.
Married three times.
1st wife Edna-divorced no children.
2nd wife Elsie-two children-Anna Ruth and Robert Erwin divorced-probably on record in Huntsville late 30s.
3rd wife Julia-children- Me March 29 1947 and Ava Jane June 14 1949.
Buried Chattanooga National Cemetery.
Grandather : Jacob Puckett, brought in a sawmill to the county in the 1880s, That explains the second growth timber in Scott Co.
Grandmother : Martha maiden name unknown, I will ask my half sister Anna Ruth Puckett (Anna Ruth Humphries) or my half brother
Robert Erwin Puckett.

The names in in the Jeru Phillips story are familiar from the stories my father told me 40 yrs ago. My grandfather (Jacob)worked for the L&N
railroad died sometime in early 1890s. Martha remarried to Calvin? Stanley, Scott Co.
Sheriff or Deputy Sheriff , in the early 1900s?

Martha Stanley (grandma) had several children these are the four I remember.

Two of my Uncles were killed by lightning (not at the same time but almost in the same spot, a few feet from the barn, in the area
city (Onieda) annexed for industrial expansion). I believe they are buried in the cemetary that lays between the Road and the
cemetary where Clyde and Pearl lived.

Calvin- US ambassador to Greece in 1939-40? Professor of Languages, Rice University Retired in the 60s in San Diego, CA

Clyde - struck by lightning.

Pearl-Married Clyde Phillips 1946-US conservation officer for Scott Co.1950-1974.
-son Dwayne or Duane was married-divorced has two children in Huntsville.
I do not know if Clyde Phillips is a decendant of Jeru Phillips.

Mary- Married Charles Byrd, (Bryd Brothers Dodge) Huntsville, TN-no children
This is all I can remember,

Warren Puckett Jr. :
4/12/1998 20:00Joyce Scott Sharpejssharpe@bellsouth.netNashville, TNSaw your Claiborne County page - are you familiar with the Claiborne County Pioneer Project - used to hv a web
page but i cannot find it anymore.
Hampden S. Scott and Rebecca Kemmer Scott were my 2nd great grandparents. I still have a distant cousin living in
Harrogate. Would you happen to know if there is anything available that tells about the old Smith-Ball farm ?
you might mention any books you think would be of benefit for those of us interested in Claiborne County history,
my particular interest is in what used to be known as Shawanee.
4/28/1998 1:26Dinah Davis Phillipsphillips@iupui.eduIndianapolis, formerly Scott County, TennesseeI was given you web site address by Paul Roy, Independent Herald, Scott County, Tennessee. I am researching
the Phillips tree also, and am hoping to connect my husband's line with your research. His great great grandfather was
John (Egg) Phillips, b. 1819, d. 1911 (married Sally West); he was the son of Johnathin Phillips, b. 1800, d. 1893.
His great grandfather was Jonathan Phillips, b. 1842 (married Martha Ann Reed); grandfather was John Wesley,
b. 1871(married Elizabeth Keeton). His father was Gerstle Phillips b. 1901 (married Opal Orick White). I started
researching about a year ago. The above information was obtained from the family bible and "Scott County, TN and
Its Families", published by the Scott County Historical Society. If you can add to this research, I would greatly
appreciate your sharing information with me. If any of my research would benefit you, I will gladly share with you also.
Thanks so much. I enjoyed your homepage.
P.S. Just fyi, I am also researching Davis, Terry, Brown, Stonecipher, West and Orick families of Scott County.
These are my ancestors, except the Oricks. They are my husband's maternal ancestors.

There were three other children including a set of twins (Sarah and Robert born 1874 and Henry born 1871). Delia's birth certificate has J.W. Kirkpatrick, so there is some confusion here). But, very much interested in getting information.

from 1907-1909. He was custodian of the Texas Senate Chamber for 7 years prior to his death in1931 from a
stroke. He would play his fiddle and entertain visitors with a description of the paintings and history of the
Senate chamber. His cousin, Hal SEVIER, settled in Uvalde County and also served in the Texas House of
Representatives as the same time as my great-grandfather. Hal married, Clara DRISCOLL, called the savior
of the Alamo, and started the Austin American-Statesman newspaper. I'd appreciate more informaion about the
WARREN portion of the family tree. I'm also looking for information on my father's paternal side of the family,

1/26/2000 19:47Bonnie JohnsonFLBonnieLargo, FlI have been trying to find my mother's descendents. She thinks her maiden name could be Payne. Since she was taken from her home in Phillipsburg,Pa, in the year of or about 1913-1914 and given to a family by the name of Ward (J. Wesley & Emma) in Union City, Pa. from the Welfare Board. They never adopted her and she needs to find her roots. I realize she is not in records of adoption which were non-existant at that time, but it is very important to her. She has been told that she may have had brothers & sisters in this large family. Please respond if you feel she may be related in some way to you. It would be such a comfort and closure to her search. Thank you in advance, Bonnie Johnson, her faithful daughter.

I was born in 1953 in California. My father was approximately 30 years of age at the time of my birth, and my mother was 23 (she may have been married and separated).

4/14/2000 0:49Sharon Tedrowcastaway2@email.msn.comCaliforniaI am a direct descendant of Archibald C. Sevier, born about 1789 and married to Hannah Webb. He is a descendant of Valentine Sevier and Joanna Goad. It is unknown by my family, however, if he is a grandson of Gov. John Sevier, or the son of Joseph I. Sevier.

Both Gov. John Sevier and Joseph I. Sevier are sons of Valentine, John being the oldest and Joseph the youngest.

Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

Thank you gor helping me on that Saturday (BellSouth DSL Tech Support). Remember? (Ivanara, form Brazil, in Miami Florida)...We spent the whole afternoon trying to configure the DSL service in my friend's house when all we needed to do was to remove the US Rob. modem card to get the DSL modem to work?

But anyway, it was very nice of you to spent that much time with me. The service is great and it is working very well. The following weekend I did the same with mine, but I had to deal with Mindspring/Earthlink this time. (No problems, now I also have DSL up and running).

The page is very nice and I am coming back for tips and to browse a little bit more when I have some spare time this weekend.

Keep in toutch and best wishes for you and your family.

3/8/2003 19:40katiebonjovi@wcoilI have been tracking the lineage of my father's (Robert L Darnell) his great grandfather, also Robert, married Eveline Crockett. There is, as you know a question on her- some have her as b. 1822 others 1826. -and to a Crockett from Maine. However, with the info I have from my family archives, I believe there were 2 Eveline Crocketts- one born in Tn. in 1822 (my lineage) and another born 1826 in Maine. As I was reviewing the surnames and info on you site- going over info on other children of John and Rebecca Crockett's children- the youngest was Wilson Crockett. You have him listed as being born in 1800. and getting married in 1810( either it's a typo or we have another problem with another Crockett- please advise. Katie (Darnell) Marshall

9/1/2003 17:21Katie (Darnell) Marshallbonjovi@wcoil.comOhioI am very interested in the Crockett ancestry,whichever line it is. My great great grandparents were Robert Darnell b. 1818 in Tenn. and Eveline Crockett b. 1822/23 also in Tnn. My Darnell family also includes a lot of Cunninghams,Gregorys, Powells, Rices, Vanices (Van Nuys) and members from each one all are aware of Eveline Crockett but no one can find any documentation as proof. Some researchers have tried to link them to the Darnell's who moved to Texas w/the Crocketts. I have not been successful in convincing them otherwise. My line never made it farther than Illinois, then moved back to the Missouri area. They get Robert C. (Click) Darnell confused with my Robert. THey were cousins, unfortunately born in the same year in thr same state. Anyway, your site has given me some clues to pursue g-g-grandma Eveline's family. The only othr Crockett name I have been told about that possibly connects to her is a Frances Crockett b. 1802,and she is connected to a Jim Cotten. This info from a Phyllis Brooks Marillian (related to the Powells).
9/2/2003 18:01Terri Baileytbailey0330@excite.comGen. John Sevier is one of my ancestorial grandfathers (by way of his son Maj. John Jr....). I couldn't help but note that Gen. John's father, Valentine (born 1702 in the Parish of St. Giles, London, England), is illegitimate? Documentation states that his father, Valentine "The Hugenot" Sevier (born 1678), was married to his mother, Mary Smith, on Aug. 6, 1708....six years after his birth. True?

12/4/2005 18:52John MaskIraqJoe Payne,
I found your website on the internet about the Martha Baskin Romer family report. It seems you have a great deal of information about my family history. I am a Captain in the Army and I'm currently stationed in Europe after serving in Iraq. I was hoping you could share your genoelogical sources and maybe even some more background information about the people in
the family tree. I am the grandson of Frances Earl Mask and great-grandson of Homer Hosea Bellew Mask. I don't know my family history beyond these people and want to learn. Frances Earl worked on the Manhattan Project during world war two which is why my father was born in Oak Ridge (the secret city). Homer Hosea was appointed by President Roosevelt as the director of the a land project in your state of Tennessee as well. My inclination is that if the only family members I know of have some proud history there must be more out there. Thank you for you time and assistance.

12/4/2005 18:53Bumgardner, Randy DWashington, D.C.Hi Joe,

Gladys suggested I contact you. My line of Baumgartner's originated in Wythe, Washington and Lee Counties in Virginia. I looked all the photos and nothing pops as a connection, but I thought it's worth a try anyway.
I'm sure there is a connection somewhere.

My earliest Bumgardner that I can trace was George Bumgardner born about 1790, married Katherine Moyers at Wythe County in 1815. George and Katherine had a son also named George. This George married Susannah Patton at Wythe County in 1840. George and Susannah had a son named Frank.
Frank was born about 1841 and married Emmaline Lethco at Johnson County, Tennessee in 1860 and later lived in Washington and then Lee County. Frank and Emmaline had a son William Henry Bumgardner. William Henry married
Lucy Woods in 1893 in Lee County. William and Lucy's son James was my great grandfather.

Does any of this sound familiar with your line?

Gladys told me that George "Eddy" Payne was your brother. I will always have a special place in my heart for him. He and Georgia Baker of LMU were responsible for my ending up in Washington - now as the General Manager of Blair House, the President's Guest House - where world leaders stay while in Washington. Your brother always made a point of checking with me when he would be at the State Department. It's a long way from my grandmothers outhouse in East Tennessee to the White House and your brother took the interest in this Tennessee kid and helped me along.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Kind regards,

Randy Bumgardner

1/12/2007 8:40Joyce S. WallaceJoyce1812VA@AOL.COMPetersburg, VAHello. My parents were from Sneedville and Tazewell TN. My mom, Laura Purkey moved to Blue Top in her early teens, and met up with my daddy, Ralph Stanifer who was born in Claiborne. They were married from 1938 to 1990 when both died three weeks apart. Daddy was enlisted in the army during WW11, never to return to TN. Finally settling in VA in the early 1950's the family remained here. I am the only Virginian born in the family, yet my roots are from the rocky ground of Eastern TN. Roots run deep. After many years of questions, I have been able to get some answers thanks to the help of the Claiborne Gen. sites, along with the personal help of Joe Payne. Conintue the good work for a great cause to all of my fellow genealogists. Your work is commendable.

11/23/2008 8:41Chris Hooperchooper@firstsaga.comRichmond, VAJoe, It appears that we are related through many ancestors in and around Claiborne County, TN. The following is a link to a PDF file of my research:

On your page "Descendants of George Chadwell" you show:
(189) Nellie Grant Gertrude7 JENNINGS, (Mary6 JONES, Nancy5 KESTERSON, David4, Nannie3 CHADWELL, John2, George1) was born Mar 10, 1877 at Alma, Crawford, Ark, and married (223) Otto Delavan HOPPER who was born Sep 6, 1870 at Cowden, Shelby Co., Ill. Nellie Grant Gertrude died on May 11, 1958 at Brady, Sharp, Ark.
No children of this marriage in these records.

Nellie and Otto were my grandparents, and he was a Hooper, not Hopper. My PDF file lists their children and much more of our family information. Hopefully this will help expand your research.

10/9/2010 14:36Patricia Shutegreengaia@gmail.comPhoenix, AZI came across your page for Barlett O'Dell,fourth generation. The link for fifth generation will not work, so I cannot check forward on Clyde Shute.

I came across your page while I was looking for Harvey Shute, who was my paternal grandfather's brother. My grandfather, Hamlin Levant Shute of Indianapolis, Indiana and his brother Harvey Shute were born to Richard Shute and Jane Davies Bonefant Rockey Shute of Detroit, Michigan.

I had recently discovered mention of Clyde Shute of Globe, Arizona. Now I wonder if he is closer kin than initially considered.

You provide much useful information, and I'd love to chat with you in email about it.

I'm not sure who it is that's searching Yocum and has the Yocum family history link here, but just wanted to let whoever it is know that Alexander Moore and Permelia Yocum Moore are buried in Ash Grove Cemetery, Ash Grove, Greene Co., MO. They were living in Greene Co., MO as of the 1900 census. Thank you for sharing all this wonderful information!
6/3/2011 22:53Jeannie Campbelljnnttcmpbll@yahoo.comI am a distant cousin. My great grandmother was Mary Elizabeth Payne daughter of Charles Louis Payne and Rachel Priscilla Beavan. She was born in Daviess County Kentucky Nov. 5, 1863. She married John Philip Bickett on August 6, 1878 in Owensboro, Kentucky. They had 15 children. I read your genealogy page and see that my grandfather John Philip Bickett Jr. was not listed. He was born January 3, 1895.
